Environmental Ethics

A note to those still making course decisions for Fall: 

I'm doing environmental ethics again, with a focus on activism: can there be an effective and responsible Green Movement, given the political climate, the machinery of media disinformation, etc.? To my mind, thinking about things like the long-term health of the planet and our status as the thinking/planning/deciding part of nature is the practical point of making such a big deal of atheism & philosophy. As Carl Sagan said, there's no sign of help coming to save us from ourselves. The question is, can we save ourselves?

Every day is Earth Day.
